We launched the Geovation water challenge last December with support from Southern Water, United Utilities, the Environment Agency and Defra, asking developers and start-ups for sustainable ideas that improve how Britain manages its water use.
The Challenge attracted over 50 great ideas, from which 10 finalists were invited to pitch their ideas to secure support and funding through the Geovation Programme.

Refillable Cities: Natalie Fee, Olivia Drake, Thomas Bell and Gus Hoyt aim to reduce dependency on plastic bottled water with a nationwide roll out of an app that pinpoints users to free tap water refill points. The app will capture data and encourage behaviour change through rewards and points that can be exchanged for money off vouchers.
